Paloma Renaissance Antalya Beach Resort & Spa

The high restaurant count and great pool scene do this place proud. Plus, it's had a top-to-toe makeover for May 2015.

The Taurus Mountains and the Med make great backdrops to this place. Paths weave their way through jasmine-scented gardens to a private stretch of beach, and just outside the hotel grounds there’s a strip of shops.

This place pulls out all the stops on the restaurant front – there are seven altogether including a Mexican one on the beach. The pools aren’t far behind, with special mention going to the one with whirlpool baths.

Fancy in parts but a bit poor on the whole

My girlfriend & I had really been looking forward to this holiday, we knew that the weather may not be the best but thought the hotel resort would keep us well looked after, this was my first package holiday. Basically, it's not a 5 star hotel as advertised, more like a 3 star service in a 4 store building, we stayed in the apartments away from the main building, the hotel was full of some kind of tech conference attendees majority of the time who stared at my girlfriend & I. Staff were somewhat helpful. I would say that 3/5 people who worked there were pleasant & helpful, some especially the macho bar men had way too much attitude & only were pleasant had you been a local or of white european descent or one of these conference people. Also, there are cats absolutely everywhere, in the restaurants & around the bar, on the sofas inside, around the grounds, EVERYWHERE! The staff dump dry cat food around entrances to the restaurant (genius) & lots of people feed them leftovers so they are ravenous & pester you, jump on tables to eat off plates when people left them & lazy staff didn't clear the tables quickly. We found a few other people who were allergic or just not into the extreme love of cats but most didn't say anything. I've been to a lot of hotels but never seen this, absolutely out of order. Most of the hotel's bars, restaurants etc were out of action because of the season. The beach wasn't great lots of pebbles but we imagined it would have been nice in high season as they had nice beds & other things to use. The food was repetitive & uninspiring with the same dishes popping up at lunch & dinner most of the time, desert was particularly bad, pretty much zero Turkish cuisine on the whole too. Towards the end of our break, the buffet was super busy with the conference people or locals who would push in queues & treat us as if we were inferior to them. Drinks were bad, cocktails made slap dash with crap ingredients & any instructions given to bar staff were ignored or misunderstood, the wine wasn't great, beer not bad, cheap local alternatives on the whole (I had been told this is the norm with all inclusive though). Turkish tea on tap was nice. One day my girlfriend asked for wine & was given an already poured out glass with about 6 flies swimming in it, AWFUL. Spa was a good point, pricey but great massages, turkish bath & steam rooms / sauna. I would not revisit this resort, as I mixed race man I was stared at like an Alien by a lot of guests & not treated respectfully enough by the staff, the cat problem is insane & the food/drink was substandard. It's a shame this region of Turkey & the hotel have put me off a country I really thought I would love visiting.More

To be or not to be, 5* is the question !

OK so this depends on your point of view and to be honest there are only a very few simple things that could turn this very good hotel and resort into something GREAT. On arrival we were surprised to find the whole hotel exterior painted in a very dark brown/green colour and first impression was that it was a Bond villain hideout. HOWEVER you soon realise what a fantastic colour it is. Most hotels are cream or terracotta and always look stained and tired. This colour doesn’t and it blends into the garden, trees and mountain a treat. BOLD but well done. Our rooms were on the first floor, both very nice and big with two large beds in each and a very nice shower room. We were lucky to have a large balcony covered in astroturf. We felt sorry for the higher floors having TINY balconies which were also home to nesting House Martins making them probably un-usable. The shower was great, amazing pressure although the temperature varied, but I’d sooner have that than the normal hotel dribble!! The room was cleaned ok, not great but ok. The mini bar re-filled but with only one beer a day. IfI was picky I would complain, but as the bar was only a short walk away it was hardly an issue. The grounds and gardens were amazing, lovely to walk through to the beach and pools with lots to look at and pliantly of space in the sun or the shade. We did notice LOTS of spare sun beds stacked away so it may get busy during the peak season. The pools were great (cold but that was expected early in the season) and the quiet adults only one was brilliant. The beach was very stony with very little sand, BUT the wooden piers made it easy to go and swim and avoid the stones etc – again a little flexibility makes it ok. The other reason you can forgive the beach is the view across to Antalya and the impressive mountains behind the hotel – STUNNING and we could have looked at them all day. The sea was cold but there were some fish to look at once you got used to it. Food – well this will divide guests I think. Let’s say upfront we didn’t go hungry, the food is good quality and 99% of the time plenty of it. The ONLY downside in our view was that it didn’t change. It was the same every night in the main buffet restaurants, even on seafood night or Italian night, there was no seafood or Italian food other than what was always there. On one night there was no food ready on the outside grills which was a let down, but only one night out of 14. The A La Carte restaurants are very good but ONLY if you can get in them. They need to re-think the booking process. And finally, the jewel in the crown here, the staff. Tulay and Merve in the main bar are not only very cute, but very friendly and look after you all the time. You don’t have to ask, they just get to know what you want. Cengiz was like our personal butler at lunch in the beach bar and dinner in the main buffet restaurant. He always made sure we had a great table and drinks, he even made sure if the girls got chilly they had blankets. Breakfast and lunch in the garden restaurant was care of Fehmi and Ihsan, again they could not do enough and we often had flowers on our table which was a lovely touch. Serdar was great on the day we had in the Cabanas on the beach. DO NOT go home before you have Gozleme from the very smiley Neriman in her little hut in the garden, not only is it fascinating seeing her make then but they taste great. Sadly I didn’t catch the name of the young lady with the barrow who came around with fruit and nibbles twice a day – very nice again. Overall this place is very very good and after all, it was not expensive !!. With a few simple things it could be GREAT, so i gues my rating is 4.5 Stars. Some people like us will look over these and enjoy the place and have a great time, others will let them get in the way of a good holiday and complain – it all depends on your outlook on life. No doubt if we had complained and asked for things to be changed they would have been (like the beer in the mini bar) but to be honest, it was so relaxing it seemed too much effort to complain over such minor things. So the real test is …. Would we go back? … YES, although not peak season as we can imagine with double the guests some of the issues may get much worse and it would feel crowded – and to be honest – I wouldn’t want to share this place and the staff with too many people !!

Hidden gem of a hotel

I visited this hotel at the end of April 2016 for 12 nights, I was really impressed from the start. The staff were really helpful and friendly and spoke great English. The food was lovely and fresh, and there was plenty of it, the room was massive, and included a well stocked mini bar, which was topped up each day with water and soft drinks (all inc), beach was literally 2 min walk. Would definately go again. Gorgeous gardens as well, very, very green, and a well maintained area for the cats there, all really well looked after.More

Huge hotel and resort

I stayed Two days in this big resort, what amaizes me is the the price is included with 3 meals as well as all drinks and facilities . Some restaurants needed to be reserved one day ahead and the food has to be selected in advance. The service was great . I want to extend my appreciation to mr Mustafa isen who made our stay comfortable.More

15th Wedding Anniversary at the Renaissance

We are currently 9 nights into a fabulous 11 night relaxing stay at the Renaissance. From start to present we have been made so welcome. When we arrived we were greeted by Tamer Dolany (manager) and offered food and drink. In our lovely room we were provided with wine and fruit, our room is 444 which has excellent views of the mountains and the coast line towards Antalya, also with the evening sun. The room is always kept clean to a high standard and the mini bar restocked daily. The food and drink it s plentiful with large variety and choice for all. The a la cartes are of a good standard, we ate in most of them, the steak house and Turkish were our favourite, being our anniversary they decorated our table with scattered flowers. All the staff are excellent and work tirelessly. Special thanks to Mustafa Isen who we recognised from a previous hotel, he gave us a free cabana for the afternoon which was a lovely touch, thank you. Also Iskendar who we first met in 2009 :) Tulay and Merve (piano bar) also Umut from the (beach bar) who were all very friendly and always smiling. The hotel has grown on us during our stay, would we return? Yes definitely. Thank you Renaissance Mark and Jo xxMore
